If the 2018 lambing season highlighted some opportunities for you to improve your ewe and lamb survival, you’re not alone. Industry-wide, reproductive efficiency has been identified as a top priority for lifting productivity, profitability and improved animal welfare standards. Lifting Lamb Survival is a practical on-farm training program focusing on learning and applying management practices to improve lamb and ewe survival. The program runs from pre-lambing to until after marking with four separate sessions, including three workshops held at a demonstration farm, and one visit to each participant’s property. Lifting Lamb Survival is delivered in Tasmania by Leanne Sherriff and Georgia McCarthy from Macquarie Franklin. The 2019 program will start in the first week of July.

 What you will learn:

  • Strategies to improve lamb survival and reduce ewe wastage
  • Best practice management for lambing
  • How to prepare the ewes and their lambing paddocks to enable better lambing
  • How to increase the kilograms of wool and/or lamb produced per hectare
